Below Zero Lounge
Saturday – Sep 26 – 11:30

Chico Fellini churns infectious electricity through a provocative mix of theatrical rock and pop noir. The Lexington, KY foursome powers a reputation for well-crafted songwriting, imaginative lyrics, commanding vocals, and stylish rock-hooks. At once accessible and full of subtext, Chico Fellini's musical collage thrills both admirers of acoustic artistry and music-lovers who use "party" as a verb.

Christopher Dennison's magnetic vocals jolt each song and suffuse the stage with inspired melodrama. Duane Lundy wears multiple hats as guitarist and producer, and brings dynamic experience from sculpting the sounds of such diverse talents as Ben Sollee, These United States, The Scourge of the Sea and Vandaveer. Luscious chanteuse Emily Hagihara adds genre-bending bass lines, grounded in her critically acclaimed mastery of percussion and guitar. On his drum kit and with unconventional devices, Brandon Judd both sets the rhythm and introduces surprising beats to an addictive sonic fusion.

Releasing their first, self-titled CD after drawing a regional following to two years of high-octane shows, Chico Fellini will ignite the national music scene in 2009.
